With the capture of the Le Petite Ferme, Kampfgruppe Kentner fell back to its next line of defense, astride the east-west lane from la Mare to Le Carillon. After clearing out the farmhouse and the surrounding buildings, Company E, reinforced by Company G, continued its advance. The Americans using the tactic of putting down heavy concentrating of fire on suspected German positions and then clearing them with small groups of men, proved time-consuming.
Attacker: American (Company E, 1st Battalion, 137th Infantry Regiment)
